Excite.com email ending August 31
 
I've used them for probably 15 or 20 years now. They say I can migrate to their host's email service Bluetie for a small annual fee, which I don't mind, but my email address will change. Change to what? As in instead of [email protected] what would my new address be? What happens if someone sends a message to my old address after Aug 31st?

If you consider migration, welcome to tls-mail.com, I promise you the next 10 years. :)

It was one of the first web portals and then became one of the first search engines. Looks like they also provided email service.

I hope Bluetie will honor Excite users to keep the @excite.com domain. I have used Excite since they started way back in the 90s, and I will like to keep my @excite email if possible.

No they won't. That's my gripe. Will have to change the email address at dozens of places I use this Email for and notify dozens of people of a new email address. What happens to places and people I forgot about or haven't communicated with in years if they try to reach me in the future? Who knows.

That's a shame. :(

I guess it's really goodbye then.

Itís all about money, they want to charge you to switch @bluetie.com just to keep the username?

No, I donít think I will.

I think the excite.co.Uk site was one of my very first email accounts - shame to see it going.
